I had my second fill on Monday (the pic is posted) and since then, I have great restriction! OMG! I never thought I would get here. I am only able to HALF the amount of food that I was eating prior to said second fill. I am getting "stuck" feelings but have NOT been stuck yet. I have to eat my food incredibly slowly and over an extended period of time. I am consuming a LOT less calories too! YAY. So, right now I can honestly say that I LOVE my band!!! I am happy that the scale continues to move downward and that makes so stinking happy!!
See this cute picture? Well, it is not so cute when you are trying to walk/run while pushing a stroller with a 7 month old that is screaming because she is hot, tired, hungry and just plain not happy! I try to exercise when my husband is home and he can keep Macy but he has been working a LOT lately and therefore I am left with 2 options: Take her with me OR Not exercise. I WANT to exercise because I want to lose weight. My hubby is not very supportive about me doing things to "better" myself...this could very well not be true....but he isn't exactly rushing home to let me go for a walk. During this "lovely" walk last night I actually stopped for a second and called my husband and told him to listen to what I was listening to......and I held the phone by Macy, screaming. I then read him the riot act! I was PISSED! My entire freaking life revolves around my kids and therefore I always put myself on the back burner! I know, I know....this is what we do when we are mothers but can't I get some "ME TIME"?!? I am only asking for a few hours a week! Now, before you contact the local child welfare department....I DID NOT just ignore her cries! I gave her a bottle, a toy, talked to her but NOTHING helped until she finally fell asleep! Ugh....eating a bowl of ice cream, sitting on the couch, watching TV would have been a LOT less stressful!
So, I am 10.6 pounds from reaching my first MAJOR weight goal. Once I lose that pesky 10.6 pounds, I will no longer weigh 300 pounds! That is a HUGE accomplishment, after all I have not been under 300 in almost 4 years, at our wedding. Granted I was about 298 but I wasn't 300 and that was AWESOME. So...since I am soooo stinking close to my goal what should my "reward" be? I am not into designer bags and am not a "girly girl". I get pedicures when I need them and get my hair cut at a reasonably priced chain salon. I thought about buying a pair of Keen shoes but not sure that is what I really want! So...to all my AWESOME followers...what would you suggest? Do you think Amy W. would come celebrate with me? That would be the BESTEST reward EVER! Yes, I am her BIGGEST (no pun intended) fan! No, seriously......give me some ideas! Thanks!!!
